The baby is soft and soft. It’s not easy to bathe them. The posture should be correct, the water temperature should be moderate, and the frequency of bathing should be scientific. Ha ha, new parents, hurry to learn!
Most babies don’t need to bathe too often because they’re not very dirty except for the wrinkles on their hips, faces, necks and skin. As long as you wash your baby’s face, hands and hips every day, you can take a bath every two or three days. You don’t even have to put the baby in the bath, just clean it from head to toe. Another good way is to wash his hair frequently to prevent excessive accumulation of dirt on his head.
Some parents are scared when they first bathe their babies. However, if you set aside half an hour first, get everything you need at hand, and try to relax, you may like to bathe your baby. After two or three washes, to a large extent, bathing becomes a routine, and you will be surprised by your fear of bathing your baby for the first time.
Where to bathe the baby
You don’t have to go to the bathroom to bathe the baby until the child grows up and can go to the adult bathtub. You can be in the baby’s bedroom or in any other warm room. This room should have enough space for all the things necessary for the baby to take a bath. The baby’s tub can be filled with water in the bathroom, and then brought to the selected room (please do not overfill the tub, otherwise, the water will overflow when carrying water. )
Babies can bathe in special carved plastic basins, which are not slippery. The bathtub should be placed on a table or a high appropriate operating platform so that you don’t have to bend down too much and you will feel very comfortable when taking a bath. In addition, you can also put the bathtub on a highly adjustable shelf (although the bathtub is extremely collision proof), or on a shelf that straddles the top of the bathtub.
However, if you don’t have a baby bath, there are cheap and practical alternatives on the market. This alternative can be used before a child can enter an adult’s tub. For example, a large plastic tub at home can be used as a baby bath, which is very useful because it can be taken to any place you want like a baby bath. Sinks in kitchens or bathrooms are also useful because they are just the right height and usually have a little extra space on their sides.
However, make sure your baby’s legs don’t touch the tap. If it’s possible, you should wrap the tap with a cloth or towel to avoid hurting the baby. If the “bath” surface is too slippery, you can use a plastic suction pad or wrap a small towel or diaper around the bath to prevent the baby’s hips from slipping inside.
This method is to let you clean the parts that really need to be cleaned for the baby, minimize the interference to the baby, and make the baby more comfortable. As the baby grows older, you don’t have to use boiled water; warm water will do.
·Boil the water and let it cool
·Diaper changing tools
1. Put the baby in a firm place. Wipe your eyes with wet cotton (each eye with a new wet cotton), gently from the bridge of your nose.
2. Wipe the outside and back of the ear with wet cotton. Don’t poke or clean inside.
3. Wipe the baby’s face with wet cotton and wipe off milk stains and saliva. If not cleaned, these things can irritate the baby’s skin.
4. Wipe the baby’s hands with a new piece of wet cotton. When the baby is older, it can be dried with a washcloth.
5. Remove the original diaper. If he is just wet, wipe the wet place with wet cotton or face washing towel.
6. If he has defecated, try to wipe off the dirt with a diaper, and then use the baby’s lotion and cotton to clean the diaper.
If you’re a little afraid to bathe a baby, or if he doesn’t particularly like being undressed, you can sponge him. Hold the baby safely in your lap, just take off a little clothes. You can also bathe a baby on a mat.
